Why Dr M dislikes Najib?

You know, I may be a DAP supporter (though this is not set in concrete, wakakaka) but I still, used to anyway, admire Dr M for his achievements and bold leadership among the 3rd World.

aisehman, tengok lah, ni 1MDB

aisehman, tengok lah, ni 
Perwaja, Bank Bumi, MAS, Konsortium Perkapalan Berhad and Forex, etc

But alas, of late I'm getting a bit fed up with his destructive diatribes, many times against the Chinese Malaysians, and now against his own party No 1 leaders, both AAB and Ah Jib Gor.

He has several notches on his political handgun, in the downfall of at least 2 PM (and UMNO Presidents) in Tunku and AAB, and the marginalization of two 3 potentials, to wit, Ku Li, Musa Hitam and Manmanlai though the last brought it upon himself with his failed plan to expedite Dr M's departure.

Will Najib be his 3rd PM (and UMNO President) to fall?

tunku, aab
musa, ku li, ghafar baba, manmanlai

ah jib gor? wakakaka

I fail to see anything altruistic in his current actions, ranging from incessantly condemning 1MDB (it'd be good if he gives us just facts for us to decide) to at-times wanting to talk to a convicted killer now hiding in Australia.

It's very hard to pin down why he is mad at Ah Jib Gor, if we remember he was the very one who "sponsored" or "anointed" the son of Razak to replace his previous archfoe and also "anointed" AAB (as he had once "anointed" Mr Manmanlai, wakakaka).

Perhaps being "anointed" by him is like being handed the poison chalice, wakakaka. In the olden days of China and Korea, once the Emperor (King) wanted a disliked royal or noble to "go", he'd be handed a cup of nice aromatic "flavoured" wine - yamseng, my Lord and goodbye.

Errr ... your Majesty, I'm from Malaysia and we don't take alcohol

I respectfully decline


I know the reason for his hatred for and enmity towards AAB (it's a two-letter word, wakakaka) but I can't say the same with regards to his animosity and hostility towards the current PM.

I suppose we could speculate the following, whether it has been Ah Jib Gor's:

  • lack of support for Mukhriz to get an UMNO party VP position, which has now made it difficult for the young laddie to climb to the very top of the UMNO leadership echelon and subsequently PM of Malaysia?
  • lack of 'playing hardball' with Singapore, in his refusal to carry on the crooked bridge project and allowing Sing to develop the KTM land?

    Actually it was AAB who wisely abandoned the crooked project but Najib refuses to re-commence the expensive construction. 

    One of his mouthpieces revealed Dr M's 'chip on his shoulder' when criticizing Ah Jib Gor for the abandonment of the bridge project when he (the mouthpiece) stated that the PM had surrendered national "dignity" to Sing. Dr M himself said "We should not kowtow to Singapore".

    Really, can Malaysians afford Dr M's very expensive idea of asserting national "dignity" by shafting the crooked bridge down the Sing's behind?
  • friendliness towards the Chinese? TMI reported Dr M blasting Ah Jib Gor as follows:

    Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s "1Malaysia" slogan is just a duplicate of the opposition’s "Malaysian Malaysia" catchphrase, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said today, in his latest attack against the embattled prime minister.

    He said Najib had emulated the opposition in his attempts to woo the Chinese and Indians during his first few years in office by dialling back on pro-Bumiputera policies.

    “He reduced places for Bumis in the government universities even though in the numerous private universities and twinned colleges, Bumis make up less than 10%,” Dr Mahathir wrote in his latest blog post. Bumiputera contractors and small businesses no longer had government favour. Most had to stop their businesses."
    “Without saying so in so many words, he had adopted the Malaysian Malaysia slogan of the opposition, only calling it One Malaysia instead.”

    Is it true?

    Well, Wikipedia stated that prior to May 13, 
    Mahathir had predicted the outbreak of racial hostility. Now, outside parliament, he openly criticised the government, sending a letter to Abdul Rahman in which the prime minister was criticised for failing to uphold Malay interests.

    If so, then Ah Jib Gor is like Tunku Abdul Rahman who was similarly accused by Dr M of being too friendly to the Chinese and for failing to look after Malay 'interests'.

    wroteIn an interview with K Das, the Tunku said, why did they have to start a race riot just to get rid of him? If they wanted him to go all they needed to do was to tell him so and he would have gladly resigned.

    With tears streaming down his face he said why did Allah curse him by allowing him to live to see Malayans killing Malayans during May 13. He would rather have died than live to see the tragedy of May 13. Choking with emotion the Tunku told K Das that he could not continue with the interview.

    The Tunku died in 1990 at the age of 87 without rejoining Umno, which he said was not the original Umno but Dr Mahathir’s Umno. How ironical that the Father of Independence died outside Umno and in bitter opposition to the party that he no longer regarded as legitimate.

    The Tunku died broke having spent all his wealth on the party. He was so broke that he could not even pay the income tax that he owed. His critics say that he gambled all his money away. Even if that is really the reason why, he had so many Chinese friends and even made Chinese like Lim Goh Tong into billionaires. So they could have easily given the Tunku millions if he needed the money.

    But that was not what people like the Tunku are made of. And while he was ousted because he was too friendly with the Chinese and gave the Chinese too much face and was not Malay enough, the Tunku was one Prime Minister who was ‘the happy Prime Minister’ and who wanted to also see all Malaysians happy as well and who cried every time he talked about May 13.

    I have never known any other Umno man cry over the tragedy of May 13 other than warn the Chinese that if they talk too much then expect May 13 Version 2.

    Where have the Malays like the Tunku disappeared to? Sigh…

    Also, K. Siladass who joined the DAP after coming across from the Labour Party wrote the following in 2013 (extracts): 

    Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, former prime minister had indeed accused Malaysia’s first prime minister Tunku Abdul Rahman of having done something not permitted by law by granting citizenship to one million foreign immigrants.

    Historians of repute will be quick to confirm how inhuman, unsound, flippant and exasperating is Mahathir’s allegation

    The granting of citizenship to “foreign immigrants” was not the work of one man – Tunku alone. Besides, it is wicked of Mahathir to claim that one million or so residents in Malaya were purely immigrants ignoring the fact that they had lived in this country for generations; and had been an integral part in the resistance against the Japanese occupation and in the fight against communism. Those one million or so “foreign immigrants” as Mahathir arrogantly and wickedly describes are the ones who saw the economic progress of this country from the time the East India Company arrived here, under constant perilous conditions.

  • It is indeed shocking that Mahathir had not acquainted himself of the negotiations among the Alliance Partners consisting of UMNO-MCA-MIC, the predecessor of Barisan Nasional (BN) which played a prominent role in achieving Merdeka. Aside this, it is also shocking that a man of Mahathir’s stature would descend to cheap politics in hurling condemnation against the late Tunku, who was indeed instrumental in ensuring that the radicals from all sides did not scuttle the movement towards Merdeka by their emotional actions.

    These historical facts are there for the world to see; that the partners in Alliance were concerned as to the type of policy that had to be adopted and implemented after Merdeka in relation to education, citizenship and Malay special privileges. These were classified as sensitive issues and it is fair to infer that there must have been a lot of debate over them.

I would put the genesis of Dr M's general indisposition towards the Chinese (he of course has his exceptions to this) in his earlier days, with some saying during his university days in Sing, which then saw him arrogantly saying he didn't need Chinese voters to support him in the 1969 general election, in which he lost his seat to PAS' Yusof Rawa in the federal constituency of Kota Setar Selatan. 

It was said he has never forgiven the Chinese for making him lose his seat, even though he was the one who said he didn't need their votes, wakakaka, though he seems to have forgotten they saved his 6 o'clock in 1999. Memang Melayu mudah lupa.

Anyway, Zainal Abidin wrote The Man in the Ivory Tower in Malaysia-Today that extracts): 

TDM’s remark that “Malays only voted for BN because they feared Anwar would appoint Kit Siang as DPM” is an affront to the intelligence and thinking skills of Malays. By saying that, TDM is acknowledging his failure to change the mindset and education system of the nation when he was the PM. If TDM believes his policies are gold-plated ones, surely he would concede that Malays in this country have matured in their analytical abilities and moral standing. [...]

With due respect, TDM must see that in this entire planet, he is the one and only political leader who has consistently blasted his successor and his successor’s successor – both of whom he handpicked. No other political leader has sunk to such a low.

Apart from being a naysayer, TDM has also turned soothsayer foretelling the loss of BN in GE14 should Najib still leads BN. Controversies and the process of election are two different matters. TDM, for all the years of political experience he has amassed, must realize the performance of a political party in any election depends on many factors. His statement is a clear indication that he wants Najib out at all costs and will sing any tune to any band as long as the lyrics of the song wax lyrical about his never-ending refrain of ousting Najib.

I recommend you read Zainal Abidin's The Man in the Ivory Tower in full.

So this is the man Siti Nurhaliza loves and respects.


  1. Its an internal UMNO power struggle.

    I do not support Najib, and will not lift a single millimetre of finger to defend him.
    I do not support Mahathir either.

    1. Aiyaaa......just bring some popcorns and enjoy the show!

      Meanwhile Question Time!

      Who is Cecil Parkinson?

      Parkinson was forced to resign his cabinet post due to his affair with his secretary. Compared to Najib........and Rosmah.......

    2. Whatever Mahathir did, he did it when he was in UMNO. so those in the cabinet are not innocent. They are complicit in whatever he did, since they did not condemn him, but even voted what he proposed to do.

    3. who dared to criticise him then, let alone condemned. Even the Great Anwar kept quiet like a mouse for 16 years, until he was forcefully expelled from UMNO.

  2. "I may be a DAP supporter "......

    I had a distinct impression you were a Najib lover-boy .....wakakakakakakakaka..

    1. fair & balanced independent political thinking is an alien concept in Malaysia - thus it's easier to assign someone you can't believe possesses a degree of "fair & balanced independent political thinking" to some convenient deprecatory category, eg. 'Najib's lover boy', wakakaka

    2. Hahahahahaha! Like Fox news! Hahahahaha!

      I wonder which cuntry Murdoch was born?

  3. Fight! Fight! Fight!

    Meanwhile we have Aussie born Natalie Barnett, Green Party leader and London born Tony Abbott........hahahahaha!

  4. I guess it is time for me to take side now. I disagree with TDM.

    Najib should stay on as the PM until GE14. In GE13 Najib became a democratically elected PM. Let him finish his term.

    Yes, perhaps Najib has made mistakes. But which leaders didn’t? Didn’t TDM made a lot of blunders too and yet he had took so long to pick it up and realised that he had overstayed his welcome?

    To PM Najib, my personal advice to you is ‘betulkan dan tumpukan niat 1Malaysia kamu’ and God willing you will achieve it.

    To the First Lady, don’t kill your husband with your suffocating embrace. Please give your husband some space. You should walk 10 feet behind him.

    To Siti Nurhaliza you should stop talking and keep on singing lah.

    I am dedicating this song to Najib.

    1. karma chemeleon suit him better.

    2. Hey HY…

      Your song ‘Karma Chameleon’ was used by Labour politicians in 2006, as the theme song for several political advertisements against the Conservative Party leader David Cameron in 2006 UK local Elections.

      David Cameron became the PM in 2010 until today. From my crystal ball - I think PM Najib must thank you, yea HY?

    3. sdr Hasan bagitu awal dah bangun? wakakaka, ta'bolih tidur?

    4. Oh bukan begitu kawan... Saya ikut waktu Sydney, so that I can be a few hours ahead... Wakakaka

    5. but cameron never make a "mistake".

      ok la, u play guitar n kt sing let it be, what a bittersweet symphony!

      No change, I can't change
      I can't change, I can't change
      But I'm here in my mold
      I am here in my mold
      But I'm a million different people
      From one day to the next
      I can't change my mold
      No, no, no, no, no

    6. ish… ish…ish… HY

      Don’t you know this HY?... i.e. unfortunately, after this song, Jagger then suffered from a nervous breakdown, and the group eventually broke-up. Why don’t you open up your heart and think before you pen your thoughts! Wakakaka…

  5. Mappadulung Daeng Mattimung Karaeng Sanrobone ....@ Najib's aristocratic hereditary Bugis title....
    The 11th Orang Kaya Indera Shahbandar Pahang ........@ Najib's aristocratic hereditary Pahang title....

    by contrast Mahathir is the grandson of a lowly Keralan Tamil Muslim immigrant....considers himself a self-made man.

    Apart from the Najib scandals vs. Mahathir scandals which supporters from both sides have been dredging up, there is an increasing amount of underground sniping in Malay blogs on the Patrician aristocrat vs. the common Plebeian angle.

    1. I am not sure whether Dr M's granddad as a Keralaan is Tamil or (more probably) Malayalam. The people fo Kerala are noted to be the most literate (educated) in India, with literacy rate above 90%

  6. Kaytee,Malaysia is a developing country,with some Ketuahnan Melayu politicians and bigots with third world mentality is what you meant.Third world or fourth world if there is any,belongs to the chaotic middle eastern countries plus some like Somalia and Zimbabwe.Hehehe.

  7. Umnoputras,the anti Najib ones and the opposition have totally underestimated Najib's resilence or rather stuborness in hanging onto the PM'ship.Nabib had been very cool and have ignored or rather shunned his critics,including Mahathir during these miserable last few months.

    Najib is not panicking,in fact he seems very confident that he is able to ride through this miserable storm.Najib may even have an ace up his sleeves.Actually,these last few weeks,I thought that his time was up.

    Then came the TH fiasco.What scandal is that about the TH buying a piece of land for 188.5 million?Call this a fucking bailout? Even my family dog would tell you screaming hyenas that 188.5 is enough to pay one month's interest,but not enouth for two.

    So,what does all this bailout accusation tell us?Najib's enemies and the opposition are desperately throwing everything,including the toilet and kitchen at him,and is running short of time and definitely out of ammo?

    My 2 cts worth.Najib will prevailed.His enemies within Umno will be purged.And the opposition who jpined forces with Najib's enemies,will be squatting on the sidewalks crying out loud,for their mamas.
